Zest Recipe Manager App Reviews

  • No real cloud option

    By Rkmiron
    I've loved using this app for so long but a glitch in their app makes it impossible to sign up for the cloud storage piece so I have no way to backup all the recipes I've used. It seems like they've stopped updating the app which is so disappointing
  • Great app, but useless paid cloud storage

    By Joynre12
    I use this app almost every day and absolutely love it. I love it so much that I paid to use its cloud storage. I wanted to (1) make sure I wouldn’t lose my recipes, and (2) be able to share recipes between my phone and iPad (very convenient when food shopping). Unfortunately, after automatically syncing a few times, it just stopped working. Not only will it not automatically sync to cloud storage, I also can’t make it sync manually. When I click the “sync” button, nothing happens. So, I’ve paid for a feature that doesn’t work, and I can find no way to contact Zest to get it fixed.
  • Another forgotten app

    Disappointed they stopped doing updates to the app
  • Very frustrating app!

    By dmw1
    After I imported several recipes in Zest, it suddenly stopped working. It worked well at first, but now you have to manually cut & paste each part of a recipe (ie ingredients, directions, title & photo) and even doing that, it doesn’t work consistently. I wish the developers would fix the problems.
  • Lost access to their Cloud, no response from support

    After a year of using this app I decided to get their paid version with cloud backup.After getting a new phone I have no access and all of my recipes are lost. I did password reset but my account is not being recognized
  • No iCloud back up😩

    By Mcwt
    Love the app!!! BUT--- While free is great, I would have rather paid for it to have iCloud storage. Sadly, I cannot keep it without the iCloud backup because I do not want to pay for additional cloud storage. Since apple products offer iCloud, seems to me, you should charge for your cloud service if the user does not have a backup option. For this reason... I gave 3 stars and will delete the app. 😭😭😭 "Can I sync my recipes using my iCloud account? No. We chose not to use iCloud for recipe storage as it is an Apple-only service. As we plan to support non-Apple devices in future, iCloud did not fit our requirements."
  • Love the import from web feature

    By Rus_user
    Great app, so easy to import a recipe! Please add an ability to store a recipe as a picture. Uploading a photo crops it plus I can't enlarge it so there is no way for me to read what's on that recipe. Also, as others said, please add backup, import and export ability. Otherwise love it!
  • Love it but no backup

    By Kptrealtor
    I have grown to love this app for all my newer recipes. However, I cannot back it up to the cloud. Zest wants you to buy their storage. I just bought a new iPad and only half of my recipes came over. I am trying to figure out how to get the rest. Maybe I will find a new app I can back up.
  • Lost everything

    By RudaRu2
    I loved it until I had to wipe my iPad. Lost every recipe! I had no idea this could happen. Most apps keep your progress. I also had no idea about a zest cloud but even so I would not pay for it. Hoping to find another app just as good that I don't have to worry about. I can't even begin to replace the recipes I lost. Contacted customer service with no response.
  • Best recipe manager!

    By Saddlebred22
    I've tried a lot of recipe manager apps, and this is the best by far. Don't change a thing!
